Astrological Curveball! Mars in Sagittarius & Mercury in Pisces before March 8 Eclipse

5902003568_ae83b26995Watch out for the curveball at the end of this week (and the anxiety beforehand). With both Mercury and Mars entering signs where they can feel or act unlike themselves, your A-game is being primed for planetary humbling.

Before you close that box, discounting me as an alarmist – consider this!

Wait.. what was that?! Venus in Aquarius complicates things and Sun sinks-or-swims in Pisces

Although this week’s Astrological Considerations are divided into days, it’s a week particularly influenced by them all over all the days. So glance through them all to get a feel of how to remain stable before the fire really kicks in during the eclipse season gear up next week.

Venus in Aquarius can be a little out of control if you’re not careful – look to Wednesday for more that.

Sun in Pisces can disorient you – look to Friday on that.

In between, you have these moments where the planetary energy disperses out, and tapping into your intuition is key… and recognizing your value through play is offered over the weekend.

Menace or Mitigator – Faces of Mercury in Capricorn

Weekly Considerations

Last week felt more critical and difficult than I anticipated.

In looking back on why I felt the emotional charge of the planets so particularly, I found two suspects:
– Mars: all the aspects, mutual receptions from two weeks ago, leading to a very intense Moon in Scorpio Monday & Tuesday of which Mars, and all those aspects the week before, ruled
– Mercury entering Capricorn: can be nit-picky and critical, self-preserving – so lies even to yourself, unrealistic standards while wanting to get it all done yesterday

Planets are subconscious motivators unless you make yourself aware of their presence and consciously use their energies.

If you were like me and missed the planetary memo slightly last week, resulting in feeling a little beat-up last week, pay attention to the inner critic and warlord this week.

Mercury is BUSY, making aspects to the big outer-planet guys who govern your big ideas, values, and motivators. Mercury is tiny in size but efficient and quick at distributing ideas, thoughts, and concepts.

Put the two together and see what imagery comes to mind: distributing + big important, long-term things amongst each other = …

I see revealed secrets or lies, locking yourself up like a prisoner to finish off the year “the right way,” rushing to get things looking good but knowing the details are not done…

For someone who holds high standards of integrity like me, that’s some pretty difficult mumble jumble to negotiate into its right place.

Oh, and Mercury in Capricorn can negotiate well in this position for either side. Good cop – bad cop, which are you to yourself and to others?

Note: The current planetary situation can result in beating yourself up for not being good enough for any reason – which may or may not be true. Or, it can bring out anger and past life memories of a scored earth policy.

In all seriousness, take care of yourself and fuel positivity with a 5-minute renewal practice and some loving language for yourself.

Leave an “I love you” memo on the mirror this week to wake up to. It’s cheesy, but it’ll set yourself up on the right foot even if it’s just laughing at yourself for doing it.

Take the Mercury in Capricorn capacity for precision into your week. Be targeted in your actions so they achieve goals.

Be okay with appearances – the substance behind them can and will follow. Trust yourself on that one.

Mercury in Capricorn is keen that time is running out, so you’re best be spending it in ways that are true to your vision and are practical.

Set that timer every couple hours again this week to check-in:
– Is what I’m doing important?
– Is what I’m doing practical to what is important to get done today/this week/this month?

 

Daily Considerations

Monday Jupiter-Sun opening square | Mercury-Neptune Sextile

Sun squares Jupiter today, putting some fire under your butt about the milestones and tasks you setup around August 23rd.

Remember the tips about Getting Through Virgo and that journal I suggested you create that week? (Refresh yourself on that here).

You see now whether you’re doing it or not.

Frankly speaking, it’s a good energy to get some stuff done about those ideas you setup for yourself.

Again, pulling from the Weekly Considerations, let yourself with putting up the skeleton of what you wanted to accomplish. Trust that you’re substantiate that framework later.

Mercury aspects Neptune today, and will be in orb/effect through Friday.

Mercury in aspect to Neptune asks:
– Are you staying true to the vision?
– Were you wearing rose-tinted glasses last August? (If so, is that okay)?
– Are you drowning in busyness and other people’s emotional suck?

 

Tuesday Moon in Aquarius

If you’re able to sleep, pay attention to the quirky ideas your mind might develop in dreamtime.

It’s a good day to be a scattered Aquarius today, or to adopted yourself into the Aquarius family.

What do I mean by that? Continue reading “Menace or Mitigator – Faces of Mercury in Capricorn”

Work It!… Like the cold outside – Scorpio edged focus before the holiday hustle

Weekly Considerations

There’s something about the cold that brings clarity, direction, and focus.

As Halloween closes, the bustle of the holiday season twinkles its fingers, beckoning a hell-o.

The holidays require us to be sharp, often in misled ways: choosing one sales item from another, deciding travel schedules to avoid crowds, over-contemplating come-backs for awkward family conversations about what you’ve been doing this year…

If there’s one thing I’m learning most by being a mom, it’s there’s no value in making something too precious. In the moment, I need to decide what is best for the baby. And that’s that.

If I mess up, I seek to fix it. I cannot waste time feeling bad about it; I need to be proactive in making the necessary steps – sometimes on uncertain ground – to get to the un-negotiable goal. (Happy, healthy baby with foundations for a well-rounded and productive life).

When stepping into the cold, I bet you already know where you’re going. And you’re doing it fast.

Why not bring that kind of sharp energy into your work life, your social life, your dating life…??

It’s Scorpio season, and it’s a great time use that razor-sharp focus to be in the moment and see your life unfold.

A steadfast determination with an intuitive/instinctive edge is Scorpio’s way.

Know what you want, be uncompromised about its possibility, and then direct your focus and energy to finding the outlet to make it happen.

Like a worm finds its way up to land when it rains. It knows it must get there, and it relies on its intuition and instinct to be led on the path out.

Not saying you’re a gooey worm, and…

…get yourself off to a good pre-holiday habit!
Don’t get drowned out by the clutter of other’s agendas and money-making schemes. Be on the front of your own, with the cold nipping at your butt to get moving on it already.

Say “NO” to fear who tries to get in your way!

Daily Considerations

Monday Mercury enters Scorpio; Venus-Mars Conjunction in Virgo
Reflections go back to Virgo & September in the charts of these two astrological events today.

Intelligent cooperation is perhaps how I’d define this energy, which is available to practice all week.

Pulling from last week’s ceremonies to the Full Moon and Halloween, you remember and can appreciate what you have.

Ever follow a recipe to the T only to feel a little disappointed about the result… and then someone just adds lemon to it, and it’s perfect?

You have to consider what the missing ingredient is to what you already have. Think smartly, consider the options.

Then take your metaphorical seam-ripper, and make adjustments, one little stitch at a time.

Mercury, master of many small things and details, embodied in the sign of transformation. Venus-Mars in the tailor’s sign of Virgo, making it practical, and something you can manipulate physically in this world.

No need to get totally mental about your adjustments… although clear state of mind always helps.

You have to physically do it too.

 

Tuesday Moon in Leo
Take in your surroundings today. For those in temperate climates, the leaves are changing color.

It’s a magnificent, inspiring display.

This beautiful, crunchy mess is a stage for the process of death. It’s the loss of the lush joy of summer.

Call-in all you carefully considered this summer, the person you felt illuminated inside of you.

Take in a breath of cool, autumn air (even if it’s just your mind’s memory of it) and feel the brisk energy enliven the radiance of this self like bouncing you off your seat in a go-cart as you shift gears.

Smile.

Give yourself permission to let go of glory of summer and “get to it” in the productive, smart directive energy of this season.

Carry through, though, that sense of inner radiance and empowerment you worked hard to bring up to the next level this past summer.

Have faith things will sprout up again if you table them now.

Create beautiful colors in your life, just like the deciduous trees do.

 

Wednesday Moon in Void Course all Day
It will be easy to get sidetracked today – yesterday’s election results for example.

Note it, but don’t get caught up in it.

Pull out your journal of tasks from the September Virgo days, and clean it up according to what resonates with you now. Continue reading “Work It!… Like the cold outside – Scorpio edged focus before the holiday hustle”

Sun in Scorpio: Transforming Beliefs Into Being

Weekly Considerations

It’s not a fun week. There I just said it as it is.

That’s not to say there isn’t anything of value of it.

You just have to be careful to stop yourself before imagining terrible, terrible things.

There’s a respite on Saturday – so focus on that if you really feel like you need to cut someone’s head off. But please don’t do that.

As the Sun enters Scorpio, we’re getting a little mental about things. Don’t let it drive you crazy.

The mental agility of Scorpio has a power to harness that allows for profound and permanent transformations.

It takes someone with strong Scorpio in their chart (like me) to help you to know where to sniff (aka the Daily Considerations).

There’s something very primal about Scorpio that brings us back to our origins but also show incredible hope in the catalyst toward the future.

This year, it won’t be as dark of a time as Scorpio in years past. There are Sagittarius and Piscean themes around belief and faith to bring into your life. This is what you’ve been exploring the past couple weeks anyway.

And too, Mercury is busy this week picking up luggage to deliver from the big-change planets (Uranus & Pluto).

Make some deals this week. If they’re not real yet, write them up anyway to attract the real ones in.

Breathe, practice patience, and with loving determination, carve your desires into reality.

Daily Considerations

Monday  Moon in Capricorn
Today could be filled with mixed emotions as the Moon passes through a sign that sees and says things as they are and makes aspects to six planets today.

While a little self-critical, this moon also can help with a reality check of what’s actually happening.

In meditation, I’d suggest exploring the feelings with the raw edges, with courage, and look at what it is without trying to change it.

Tuesday Moon in Capricorn and Aquarius
Be careful of waking up on the wrong side of the bed today and carrying it through your day. The work day will feel similar to yesterday.

Let new ideas and discoveries be sparked from the friction of today. To polish a stone, friction and decision on how must be made.

Give yourself opportunities to innovate and adjust.

In the Lean Startup Methodology, this is called a “pivot.” Shift your direction.

Talk to your groups and acquaintances to get their honest feedback. Let yourself receive it and let it change something within you.

Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world; sometimes working something in our everyday lives is how we see a positive evolution from within.

Wednesday Moon in Aquarius
Today you might find yourself signing an agreement or beginning a relationship with a mentor or boss that brings you closer to your dream.

If you have none to be made, name your mentors you’d like to have. Continue reading “Sun in Scorpio: Transforming Beliefs Into Being”

Mercury Retrograde Sept-Oct 2015: Cleaning House While Life is Blowing Up

WEEKLY CONSIDERATIONS

A bit like a pinball game, you’ve been tossed around every which direction the past couple weeks. It’s a bit dizzying.

These shifts have been game changers in terms of the way you approach your life.

Behind the powerhouse planetary movements of the eclipses, Pluto stationing direct, Saturn, Sun, and Mars, entering new signs, Mercury quietly has been retrograde in Libra.

An active quiet, though. Mercury’s stations to go retrograde and then back direct have an closely aspected square to the eclipses and Pluto station degrees. This forms a what’s known as a T-Square, and Mercury is in the middle, adjusting to the bigger astrological configuration and effectively cleaning house, trying to create something sustainable.

As life has been happening, Mercury’s been undoing the knots of commitments you made, compromises you thought were fair (but maybe you were thinking too small), questioning people you thought were good fits to your upcoming projects, contracts you need to renegotiate, technology products you thought you wanted but you don’t need, keeping up with the Jones’ (or not)…

The relevance of much of life earlier in the month simply has been blown away. So you’re looking at your life right now, pretty much at bare bones.

And how are you going to add muscle to it?

What ways will you need to relate yourself now?

What kind of people will you need? Agreements / contracts in place to feel safe as you explore the Saturn unknown journey I’ve been harping about?

It’ll take some nimbleness and thoughtfulness, both of which Mercury rule.

Go through those Mercury things that have been changing behind the demolition job of the past two weeks and figure out if you need it or don’t. What it means to you now? Is it worth your time?

Mercury & Mercury-ruled things – anything in multiples, the mind, books/learning objects, things with moving parts (watches, toys, kitchen accessories, etc.), technology, cars, neighborhoods, neighbors, siblings, work, chores, health, pets, daily environments, daily routines, service, those who work under you…

This week is fairly quiet amongst the heavy week last week and the intense one upcoming. But that Mercury, he’s worth looking at this week. He’s been busy and soon will be going direct, finalizing his decision on those Mercury things that have been changing in the background.

Bring consciousness to what’s happening – the big context and the smaller.

You don’t want to be surprised of what slipped your radar while you were putting out the fires in your life.

Use the calm to your advantage.

DAILY CONSIDERATIONS

Monday Moon in Aries, Eclipses Uranus
The effects of the Full Harvest Moon Lunar Eclipse still are charging through like a wild horse – erg, I guess Ram (Aries). It’s rough, caustic, and a bit careless.

Be careful today of accidents. Don’t text while crossing the street, okay?

Try tea today instead of coffee. Drink plenty of water.

Blasphemy, I know. But it’s a headache type of day, and you’ll want to minimize it. Continue reading “Mercury Retrograde Sept-Oct 2015: Cleaning House While Life is Blowing Up”

September 13 Eclipse is a Big One

It’s an intense week. Emotions are high, and the stakes feel really big.

Both the solar eclipse and upcoming Mercury retrograde are unfolding this week, and they’re basically the same chart (with the Moon changing signs).

That’s not normal. The cosmos want us really to focus on this.

“Like flickering the lights,” has been my favorite analogy to the Eclipses and how they’re reputed for sudden changes. When the lights go out, you’re disoriented in the dark long enough for when the lights go back on, you’ll likely see the same room in a different way.

Eclipses are permanent changes meant to power boost your personal evolution. It seems that death – whether literal or figurative – is common the two weeks before and after the eclipse. Probably that’s because it’s like a coming to God energy.

I’ve found that if you’ve been doing your work to be conscious in your life (thanks to work inspired by things like Astro Considerations), eclipses are really helpful and getting well-intended intentions to move quicker.

If you have procrastinating or ignoring signs to shift your life, though, eclipses can be a rude wake-up call.

But especially if the eclipse is happening at a degree that is sensitive in your natal or progressed astrological charts. That’s something an astrologer could easily help you determine…

Eclipses are determined by their proximity to the magnetic poles (called nodes) to the Moon.

Next to the North Node (instead of South), this eclipse is is about bringing you closer to how you’re designed to evolve from your tendencies and old way of being.

Juno and Lilith are next to the eclipse (conjunct), and in NYC located in the 9th house.

That is to say…

Practice what you preach. Partner and be in service to your personal philosophies and outlooks like a religion.

You need to be strong in that special quiet place within yourself, that place where your faith that there is a benevolent orchestration at play is flawless. That’s the energy of your personal truth.

Lilith reminds you of your darker past, your origins… she wants to scorn or dismiss all who contradict her.. but how will you play by your own rules strategically? (Reminder: you need others to accomplish your vision).

Mercury follows soon after in Libra, instead of Virgo conjunct the MC in the 9th.

Philosophically you have been working on the rhetoric, language, and tone expressing your “reborn self” (see section on Saturn Direct in Scorpio here). This is a great forward-moving energy of pushing to realize what it is.

Related Aside: Mercury now is in its shadow period for the retrograde beginning September 17th.

Meaning, the stories, thoughts, processes, daily routines, and paperwork happening now will be the same ones re-considered throughout the Mercury Retrograde process.

I really suggest writing a brief daily recap of thoughts and activities each of these days to help you make the most of your Mercury Retrograde experience.

Back to the eclipse…

Venus and Mars still are in 8th house in NYC’s chart, which is the 12th house of the eclipse anywhere.

Catch yourself fall into old habits that are automatic to you. See what facets of your personality you’re feeding, and maybe shouldn’t.

For example, I have a colleague that is near the end of long-time financial debt, thanks to her business finally finding some wild success. She has the opportunity to repeat that business activity with high probability it would succeed. Likely it could mean the end of debt.

However she is afraid to move forward and commit to it. It’s partly her personal karma, but it might more so be about what excuses she uses that no longer will be valid when she can no longer identify as “in debt.”

Stepping into the unknown about your public self scary, but it’s worth doing.

Before I decided to go meet my mom after 25 years, I was hysterical in emotions I couldn’t figure out. When I realized I identified so much of my life and strength to the part of me that wasn’t connected to her, I didn’t know who I’d be without it, I said, “that’s not the type of person I want to be.” I met her, and it was a renewing experience not only for me but for my mom, our family, and friends with whom I’ve shared the story.

It takes courage to change.

Eclipses require courage.

And it’s a good thing that we’ve been saturated with so much Leo energy recently, because Leo fosters courage.

So does Mars. There’s an ability to extract out the old and master the cobwebs that keep you spinning instead of weaving throughout your life. And it can be beautiful (Venus) experience.

Saturn is in 11th house in NYC, in the 3rd house of the eclipse anywhere.

It echoes what I’ve been writing the past few weeks about being strategic to find the language and structure that will support the bigger vision of yourself.

Pay attention to what your circles are saying about the field or circumstance on which you want to invest more of your life resources.

See what structures – programs, applications, space, people – they are using. How do they communicate amongst themselves?

Don’t reinvent the wheel everywhere – be strategic about where your innovation will be made.

DAILY CONSIDERATIONS

Tuesday Mars Trine Uranus, Moon in Cancer

Honestly, it can be a bit of an explosive day today. People might be particularly driven and laser-focused that it can feel like a “burnt earth strategy” has been launched against you. And it could feel personal with the Moon in Cancer.

The Big Cosmic Reunion – Re-visting the Past 3 Months in 1 Week

Pay attention this week. It’s a big, juicy one.

It’s a meeting of all the themes that have been happening since the Mercury Retrograde in May, with all the major players coming in for the class reunion.

You’re probably thinking, “Well so much has changed, how can I know what that even means?!”

Go back to the vision you thought you were starting after Christmas 2014. It’s about how that was nice, but it wasn’t “Goldilocks” just right.

The cosmic gymnastics since then has been about discovering what actually is the “gold” to go for.

These are the big dreams and shifts that you discovered thanks to 2.5 years of deep soul searching and the important people and concepts in your life metaphorically or even literally dying over that time.

We all had to surrender. (Which at times majorly sucked).

But surrender in order to re-birth ourselves.

Now is the moment where we plant our feet on the ground and say, this is where I need to stay strong in order to become the person I was born to be.

It’s impossible to get there in a week, a month, or even a year. As are all the things that really mattered have already proven.

… we’re talking about a 30-year cycle in total for this journey.

But before you stop reading, it’s much more manageable than it sounds.

Each “step” of this 30-year cycle has a set sub-timeframe that follows a particular archetype, and it is my job is to translate that for you.

From Sunday until September 17th, Saturn is moving forward in Scorpio to enter Sagittarius. This is the final moments of the rebirth process, planting your seeds with the people, resources, communities, and ideals that will make you as strong as a tree over the coming years.

From September 18th, Saturn is in Sagittarius (the 2nd house from our rebirth). We’re in a 2 year sub-timeframe journey of making leaps to test the limits of our vision of what’s possible for ourselves in order to discover the truth of it. This is a time of gathering resources, giving / finding the value, feeling worthy and that this is worthwhile, and accruing the energetic pot of gold that will feed the coming sub-timeframes.

It’s inevitable that these leaps will sometimes disappoint, but remember, it’s about discovering your truth of what works for you in the new vision of who you actually can be.

We follow the movement of Jupiter and its ruling planet by sign within these 2-year cycles to get more narrowed focuses.

Translation:

Starting September and for a year, it’ll be about the nuts and bolts. Process. Daily activities and routines. Health & Well-Being. Those you take care of. Colleagues.

September – October 2015: Are you relating to the right people to be able to find true success? Are there people from the past you should bring back into your life? Or should you let go of some of those you are closest to? (Think business partners, clients, best friends, love partners).

November 3-20, 2015: What is the smartest strategy you can invest yourself into to set yourself up for success? What habits or people do you need to cut out, yesterday? You’ll need to be nimble and trust your gut instincts for this one.

November 21-December 11: What are some practical ways you can test the waters to integrate your personal growth into your ideal professional life? What will nurture your soul right now, renew your sense of hope and inspiration in what you’re aspiring to become?

… and the cosmic story will continue to unfold with its nuances in between.

See, that’s very manageable.

*****

Back to this week’s class reunion and Astrological Considerations:

Sunday the 2nd – Saturn Direct in Scorpio
Enough backtracking, questioning, doubting, and surrendering every last ounce of your sense of self. Time to move forward and claim your stake in ground of what matters in the long-run, even if you don’t have it now (you likely won’t).

Monday the 3rd – Saturn in Scorpio Square Jupiter in Leo
Since July 2014, you’ve been discovering a new sense of self and your calling. You think it might be that. Time to own whatever your emotional markers are for your true identity and make some structure in your life to keep it and integrate into your life. Can be now, can be later, but you need to make a plan on how to keep that inner fire glowing. Make some ideas today, tomorrow’s energy will help a LOT.

Tuesday the 4th – Venus Retrograde Conjunct Jupiter in Leo
June into mid-July was all fun and games with our friends. Life was beautiful. Then the pressure took hold and made us notice all these flaws everywhere outside and inside ourselves. Today we go back to the beautiful place. Enjoy your social events today and the rest of this week, but also take note of what that sweet spot means to you. What helps you get there?

Wednesday the 5th – Venus Retrograde in Leo Square Saturn in Scorpio
Think back to yesterday’s happy space. Is the type of fun you’re having now aligned to the improved, aligned to purpose you? Or might there be a different way of interacting socially that is more sustainable to nurturing those stakes in the ground from Sunday of becoming who you were born to be?

Thursday the 6th – Mars in Cancer Trine Saturn in Scorpio & Mercury Conjunct Venus in Leo & Square Saturn in Scorpio

The Mars in Cancer story that began end of July is coming to an end, and that means there’s a moral to the story you need to reveal and tell yourself. In having to be a part of the group, however twisted that became, were they worth it? Even if you didn’t make much progress, were your efforts to do something inspiring fulfilling? Use the Mercury energy to think at the level of your playful, vibrant soul self and then write down the moral of the Mars story and how you can integrate that in your life.

Friday the 7th – Mercury Conjuncts Jupiter in Leo then enters Virgo
As Mercury completes his journey Leo, he gets a giant springboard into Virgo. Get ready for mental clarity, agility, and sharpness to “clean house” before Jupiter travels the same path. This is a great day to string together all those ideas floating from the previous days considerations into something practical and short-term. Go ahead and put rough ideas of what long-term could be, but layout specifically the short-term plan.

Saturday the 8th – Mars enters Leo
Mars is coming in to be the on the ground doer of all the planets that have been travel through Leo: Sun (the true identity), Mercury (the talker and connector), Venus (the relationship creatrice), and Jupiter (the visionary and wise). Mars in Leo can get a little pompous and self-righteous, especially after enduring the sign of Cancer. But stay focused on what all these other planets revealed to you so to use the Mars energy to start implementing those short-term plans you created yesterday. You will judge if it’s working at the beginning by seeing if that happy place on Tuesday is alive within you and later on if your plan/checklist is getting done. So starting working on it!

 

Good Past Considerations to Re-Visit:

Saturn Retrogrades Back Into Scorpio

Mars in Cancer

 

This Week’s Astrological Considerations (June 8th, 2015)

Mars has been traveling forward in Gemini as Mercury has been traveling backward in it. This is to say that your Mars principle (action, forward movement, and determination, to name a few positive characteristics) has steadily been moving you forward as Mercury has been unwinding the figurative knots in your Venus desires to create and take pleasures in your life. (These were from Venus’ journey in Gemini in May).

This week is particularly special because Mars will perfect his conjunction to the Sun allowing for the possibility to see your true self in the actions you take.

I like to conceive of time as an election:whatever time I spend on one thing is voting for my life producing more of what was intended behind my action.

What version of yourself are you voting for by your time?

Too, this week Mars will reach exact sextile aspect to both Jupiter and Uranus. Sextiles are planetary relationships that easily can be missed, but they are considered gifts if you’re aware enough to find and use them. Jupiter expands and multiplies – so whatever you are doing (whether positive or negative in your life) will have double, triple or more effect than normal.

Jupiter & Mars also make a Yod/Finger of God to Pluto in Capricorn. So be mindful of how you schedule your time and energy this week! It should be in alignment to your higher goals and how you want to be known.

If you’re not in integrity, that can be revealed in an aspect like this Yod –
– Transform your aggressions into earnest efforts to become someone better.
– Expand and repeat over and over even the smallest thing that you want to be more of.

Uranus in Aries initiates by means of surprise, innovation, sudden inspiration, and even accidents. Sextile to Mars this week, you can add surprises or anything unusual, preferably spontaneously for Uranus, into what you are doing and learn something from it. This also means to look at unexpected happenings this week as potentially revealing gifts.

These planetary supports go very well with the themes I’ve discussed with Mercury Retrograde and last week’s full moon. So just when you’re bringing to light your new being, growing and discovering a truer nature to yourself today, Mercury stations to go direct at the end of the week.

Mercury stationing to go direct can feel like the brakes are being put on, like it’s difficult to get out what you need. But it’s great for clarity because it focuses the everyday quick-transition video into a still image.

This is why it’s important to make commitments to yourself during the station about what version of yourself you want to become. Read my 6 Steps to reveal your positive Mercury Retrograde Story.

So this week, I’d recommend continuing ahead in your projects this week but with some flexibility. Know what’s valuable to do, but be open to how and when it happens.

When Mercury goes direct, he will retrace the moments, thoughts, lessons, and ideas you’ve accumulated this entire Retrograde period.

If you’ve been keeping a journal, start reading your entries backwards each day, one a day, starting from June 11th (the day Mercury stations direct) until you get to May 18th (the day Mercury stationed retrograde). Each day make a conscious effort to do a to positive, or even better version of the themes/topic you did during the Mercury Retrograde period.

 

Gained something, want me to discuss something more in depth? Have a question? Post it here or on my FB page.

Have a great week!
